2018 St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon
95 Points - Outstanding - Halliday Wine Companion 2022

Every vintage of our iconic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon has been awarded Gold since 1980, and this year was no exception. With its 18 months in French Oak, and notes of blueberries and cocoa, it is easy to see why this wine has been described as 'a quintessential St Hugo of might and poise'. - Tyson Stelzer


2018 St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Shiraz
95 Points - Outstanding - Halliday Wine Companion 2022

'60/40% cabernet sauvignon/shiraz. 58/42% Coonawarra/Barossa Valley. Matured 18 months in (58% new) oak barrels (French, American and a little Hungarian). Barossa shiraz serves to both build and tone Coonawarra cabernet, united seamlessly in a tightly coiled structure of great promise. Crunchy, focused, compact black fruits are intricately supported by a multicultural mix of oak, laying out a long finish of high-cocoa dark chocolate and coffee bean. A cellaring special.' - Tyson Stelzer

2018 St Hugo Barossa Shiraz
95 Points - Outstanding - Halliday Wine Companion 2022

'Matured 18 months in (55% new) 90/10% French/American oak barrels. An impressive vintage for St Hugo, leading out with a full, vibrant purple hue. A deep, compact yet bright core of crunchy blackberries, black cherries and satsuma plum hails a great vintage in the Barossa. High-cocoa dark chocolate French oak has been strategically and expertly deployed for long-term endurance. Impressive promise.' - Tyson Stelzer


2020 St Hugo Eden Valley Riesling
92 Points - Halliday Wine Companion 2022

'Selection of the best parcels from 2 blocks. The fanatical attentiveness of the JC team is more pertinent than ever in suppressing phenolic grip in the small, dry 2020 harvest – though even their superpowers have been put to the test here. Boasting a bright, pale straw-green hue, this is a tightly coiled riesling of tension and precision. Granny Smith apple fruit defines a dry finish of enduring acidity and some firm phenolic grip.' - Tyson Stelzer

2019 St Hugo Grenache Shiraz Mataro
90 Points - Halliday Wine Companion 2022

'72% grenache (70–90yo vines), 22% shiraz (majority 98yo vines), 6% mataro. Partial whole-bunch fermentation for shiraz and grenache; partial extended post-ferment maceration of grenache for 60 days in an oak vat. Matured 8 months in 100% old French oak hogsheads and puncheons. Vibrant, medium purple hue. A seamlessly assembled blend in which the dark fruits and spice of old-vine grenache assume a confident lead, albeit without the lift or definition of the great seasons. Finely textured tannins direct a finish of medium persistence.' - Tyson Stelzer
